Have you ever stooped low for success?

    I'm a new ASMRtist and I was just reading up about some people that I follow. Our channels can feature other channels and I was just going through some of the ones I had. I don't want to feature someone that I don't agree with no matter how "famous" they may be. I have too much pride to kiss a$$

    One particular person is doing ASMR now as well but he had another channel where he failed at what he was doing. He used part of that channel to promote anti-ASMR and bullied females for promoting sexuality to increase views and build their communities.

    That drama, by and large, generated a bigger following for him. He saw the benefits of the ASMR community and had an about face. I don't know how genuine he is now but suffice to say, I no longer support him.

    He shamed some people, insulted the community, but is still massively successful in that same genre. It's a slap in the face to anyone who tries hard to do things with integrity.

    Would you stoop low and do this if it meant your time to success would decrease?

    I see this a lot on YouTube on educational / how-to channels. There are a lot of charlatans who try to portray themselves as gurus in a particular subject, whereas in reality they know very little about it. Certainly not enough to be teaching others. They're just marketers.

    The adage "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing" is so so true on Youtube. Many of these "gurus" have perhaps a bit more knowledge about XXXX than their viewers and that is enough tomake them appear as "experts". They then use smoke and mirrors, clickbait titles and thumbnails, cleavage, booming voices etc, in order to gloss over all the stuff they don't know and pump out vague "advice" videos that don't have any real value. Many of them recycle other people's terrible advice and knowledge and just repackage it.

    I suppose I have made my titles a bit more clickbaity over the years, but I always ensure that the content of my videos is good quality. By "clickbaity", all I'm doing is writing a title that will appeal to a wide audience and be something that someone is actually searching for, rather than being too specific.

    The big problem is, how easy they label any other opinion or competition as "haters".
